He said: "'Friends', when it came my way, was my fourth TV series - and the other three had failed. I had exactly $11 in my pocket the day I was hired. I had to go back and read for the part of Joey a total of six times. It was far from certain I would get the role."

seriously dude.

You've most likely never been an actor, so shhhhhhh. It's hard as hell finding work that pays decent. sometimes you just have to take what you can get, even if the pay is ****. Hell i had to do a ******* Mcdonalds commercial last month, and i hate Mcdonalds.

I've played as an extra in a few movies, actually, but no I haven't been an actor per se. Still despite this ********* i don't believe that he could have possibly been on his last 11 dollars and living amongst tramps and dealers like people are saying. and if he was, why the **** didn't he get a part time job? **** i'm a struggling musician and I have one cause I don't wanna be in that situation. It just doesn't add up or make sense to me but whatever. Not like I'm getting anywhere defending my case here.

look here. actors today make about 15,000 an episode for a well funded show until they sign a big contract. in the complete year before friends, he acted in a grand total of 0 episodes or any other things. now, ive never even heard of whatever the hell he was doing in '91, so he wasnt making much off that either. he did 16 episodes for a low budget show, then had audition costs for 18 months before landing the role of Joey. so if youre going to work so damn hard to prove someone wrong, why dont you try to make sure youre not doing it to yourself.

actors dont just make money on that stuff. usually, they get a very small cut unless they are a list, and then they take their money and buy houses or sign leases to nice apartments, or they go out and buy nice clothes and dine where all the casting directors and producers eat so they can get their name in the door. then they have to pay for professional portfolios, update their headshots every few months with professional photographers, and pay for the travel. actors make a lot of money, it is true. but for an aspiring actor, every dollar you make for a long time goes somewhere. you dont have an opportunity to save because your costs are so high.

His parts were fairly minor, not major, he wasn't a name, and both those movies were low budget production.
Which means he was working for scale pay.
For a non leading role in minor production that was 10.000 dollars in early nineties.
That means in entire year before friends he made around 35.000 dollars.
Now lets take out of that agent's fee and sag dues, he goes down to about 26.000 dollars.
Year before that he made 20.000 before fees. Year before that nothing.
So yeah, 11 dollar story, very believable. Actually I'm surprised he wasn't in debt.

so you are saying we should just fire every succsessfull and good actor out there? Actors get rich because they are good, this is like working your way to the top knowing that you will get fired once you have succseeded.

Smart, Talented and down to earth. He's overcome quite a bit with drug and emotional problems in his past, and has come out of all of that still on top.
Additionally he is SO often talked about being just one of the nicest folks you'd want to know - everyone seems to like him
